Thanksgiving Pumpkin-Can you Guess? Contest

Oh boy, was this fun to make.  You'll never guess what I made the pumpkin from.  So the first person to guess correctly will win this gorgeous card and free instructions. Papers used were Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Whisper White and Glossy CS. The leaves were embossed with gold embossing powder on whisper white and then painted with re-inkers (Old Olive, Cajun Craze, More Mustard). The sky was made using glossy card stock and a sponge with Marina Mist with a scallop circle punched out of a scrap of CS and sponged on the glossy CS to make clouds in the beautiful blue Autumn sky. The pumpkin was embossed with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder in the Big Shot.

  1. I think you made the pumpkin from a circle, an oval, and a petal from flowers awash. Hope you post what you used if this is not correct. I love the technique and the leaves. I would never have imagined how great this would look. Hope I win!!

  4. OK Here's a teaser....no one is right.....yet! But two of you are close. think of what I could have used to make the pumpkin pieces (4) as wide as they are. This is a regular size card, so the pumpkin is at least 4" wide.

  14. Hi there! My guess is the 5-petal flower from the Island Floral Bigz die. It looks like you cut off 2 petals on one side and one on the other. How did I do?

  17. Is it 'heel grips' as we call them in the UK for the inside of shoes?

  19. My guess would be the leaves #2 die or the birds with leaves & flower die.. it is a beautiful card. I am anxious to hear what you used. Susie soring-48880@mypacks.net

  23. Oh my, some of y'all are too funny! I have been laughing til tears are running down my face. Doesn't take much to entertain me huh? Anyway, guesses are getting way off base. So let me clarify a little...the pumpkin is made from card stock...I didn't use any thing to make this card that is NOT an SU product. So what tool or die or punch did I use to cut out the pumpkin with (remember it is about 4" in diameter). Think BIG!

  24. Hi Sherry,

    What a hoot to read some of the guesses. Ok, here's my first guess. You used the oval scallop frame die and the clear circle die. And if that's not it, it has to be the flower die (114534). All of these are on pg 207 in the IBC. Did I win?

  25. AH...one last try. The Circle Scissors Plus?

    ReplyDelete
  26. wooooooo Hooooo we have a winner! Congratulations Jean.....my you are persistent! LOL Yes I used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut a circle frame, cut into the pieces I used to make the sections of the pumpkin. Jean email me privately at sherrysinknstamps@yahoo.com with your address.

    Thanks everyone that participated today, it was much fun...thanks for making me laugh!

  27. Thanks Sherry! I emailed you the address. I don't know if I would have figured it out without your last hint. You sure gave all of us a fun day of watching and guessing. I think most of us were fixating on the kidney shaped pieces not the bottom circle piece. Looking forward to seeing the tutorial and especially the card up close and personal in all its glory.
